Iridium Runners

Iridium Runners takes players to the year 2050, where rivalries on the track are no longer settled by vehicle but by feet.

Racing at breakneck speeds through a myriad of challenging tracks, players must do whatever it takes to win. Shrinking your opponent, knocking them over as you pass, or setting traps that will fling them over the side and into oblivion are all legal methods of being first across the finish line.

  • 20 characters and 8 pod sidekicks to choose from. Picking the right one is crucial to winning the race
  • 30 tracks to race on, each with their own unique obstacles and challenges
  • Single Race, Cup and Championship modes are available in both single player and multiplayer
  • Collect power ups during the race that give you special powers that allow you to increase your performance or attack your opponent
  • Unlock new characters, suits, tracks, soundtracks, and production artwork as you proceed throughout the game
Platform:PS2

IGN03/2008

"There are moments where it's possible to go from fourth to first as you scream across the finish line, and it's just as easy to drop back at the last second, keeping most races tight and exciting."

1UP02/2008

"It provides the same tactile feedback you would expect from a chaotic Wii sports game, combined with the tried-and-true control methods that an analog stick and old-fashioned buttons provide. Racing games live and die with their control, and everything in Iridium feels just right."

Cheat Code Central03/2008

"Iridium Runners is by far one of the best budget titles I have ever played. It has very solid racing mechanics, and is a very fun game to play with friends. [...] It is cheap entertainment at its finest, and it's pretty difficult to argue with that."
